2009 has been quite a year for Alice Russell. Local and fellow SF label, Six Degrees Records released “Pot of Gold” – produced by TM Juke now followed by this two volume album of 32 remixed tracks.
Like previous remix projects, Alice’s funky, soulful original album has been given the world class remix treatment from an all-star cast of producers including Mr. Scruff, DJ Vadim, Om’s very own J-Boogie, Shawn Lee, Ohmega Watts, DJ Day, and many more!
Alice has developed a burgeoning career as one of the hottest UK soul singers with growing audiences around the world. While comparisons have been made to other popular British vocalists like Joss Stone, Amy Winehouse, Duffy and Adele, one listen and look at Alice and you can immediately tell she’s in a class all by herself. She has performed alongside well respected company that includes Roy Ayres, The Roots, Lonnie Liston Smith, De La Soul, Quantic, and The Quantic Soul Orchestra to name a few. In addition to this prolific musical output, Alice’s live performances continue to flourish with her ability to captivate an audience and to hold their attention throughout, expertly tugging at the heartstrings.
I’ve been following Alice Russell for years and fondly remember her first trip to the states as a Tru Thoughts artist playing at a tiny venue here in SF. She has since moved on to a new label and larger venues.
If you aren’t a fan already, get ready to purchase the entire Alice Russell catalog.
